New LOTR Mithril Fellowship miniatures released in June 2010.
Mithril has added to its bulging website two more excellent additions to its legendary range based on the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books by J.R.R. Tolkien. These are developed from ideas submittd by the Fellowship Club, a collection of Mithril collectors that submit new ideas monthly and vote on them.
These two ideas were from December and January, and consist of Eowyn, a shield maiden from Rohan, later responsible for the slaying of the Witch-King, the most powerful Nazgul that Sauron had in his dark army.
The second one is Hirluin, a lord that assisted Gondor during the War of the Ring. He came from Lebennin with three hundred of his men, who carried banners of yellow stars. Tall and proud he was to the sight of his men, and he wore a helm of great steel matched only by that worn by the Fountain Guard. Hirluin slew many orcs during the siege but he came to his doom when he was overwhelmed by the orc horde at the breaking of the door. Hirluin was buried before the gate at which he fell alongside Elfhelm and Forlong at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
